Students in the Faculty have an excellent record of successful completion of their PhDs, and benefit from a structured approach to research support, extending from a dedicated project supervisor and supervisory team to access to a wide variety of research and training opportunities at Faculty and University level. PhD students are an integral part of our research community and are encouraged to take part in a wide ranging seminar programme, and have access to University-wide opportunities through the Institute for Liberal Arts and Sciences, dedicated to enhancing the cultural and academic environment of all students and staff through encouraging interdisciplinary conversation and collaboration across the university.
Each fully-funded studentship includes an annual tax-free stipend at RCUK rate plus tuition fees (currently £14,296 for stipend and £4,121 for fees). The funding is available for 3 years. Each studentship has an associated research expense budget (£2,000 – £3,000 per year, depending on the nature of the project, to cover project related consumables and conference travel).
Opportunities are also available for candidates from the UK/EU and overseas who can demonstrate that they can fully or partially self-fund. If you are interested in this route, please contact Professor Peter Andras at firstname.lastname@example.org for a discussion.
